Lawmakers don’t always read letters from constituents — but on Tuesday, they were reading tweets.
A number of members of Congress — including Rep. Paul RyanPaul RyanBorder tax is reverse redistribution CEOs come to defense of border tax plan 7 key players in the GOP's border tax fight MORE (R-Wis.) and Sen. Claire McCaskillClaire McCaskillJuan Williams: Senate GOP begins to push Trump away Dem senator: I may face 2018 primary from Tea Party-esque progressives Dems ask for hearings on Russian attempts to attack election infrastructure MORE (R-Mo.) — read aloud some of the more negative feedback on their Twitter account in a video titled “Mean Tweets DC.”
“We decided to try the concept on a different kind of celebrity,” the video reads.
“Paul Ryan has such pretty blue eyes, sometimes it’s easy to forget he’s satan incarnate,” Ryan reads aloud.
Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) and freshman Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) also participated.
One of the harshest, and most vulgar, tweets is read by McCaskill.
“@clairecmc you really suck a pig’s a—,” she reads.
